From wikipedia:
"A stomacher is a decorated triangular panel that fills in the front opening of a woman's gown or bodice. The stomacher may be boned, as part of a corset, or may cover the triangular front of a corset. If simply decorative, the stomacher lies over the triangular front panel of the stays, being either stitched or pinned into place, or held in place by the lacings of the gown's bodice."

They were mainly in use in the 16th century and other early fashion times.

Our college brief was to make a stomacher, base it on any period of time, ever, and also try and make it quite theatrical.

Most people in my class chose things like William Morris patterns, or Art Noveau flowers and swirls, but being as I am, I went for the 80s and chose video games. Tetris to be precise.

I also added accessories- a hair piece, supposed to be the next block about to drop down, and an NES controller attached to a shirred bracelet cuff. Everything is made from felt, and all the blocks are individual cubes. I realise this was in no way necessary but I like to punish myself by doing things correctly.

Also it's accurate- I took the design from a print screen I did whilst playing the game one time. (Yes, I am bad at Tetris.)

Summer is finally here again!

weird....i was looking at it and thinking "that can't be from a real game, the shapes aren't right!" but i'm going to guess that it's from a part of the game where you had already completed some lines? hehe...my all time high score at tetris is over 3mil...i'm just a little obsessed and all that jazz

I really like it, again because i'm obsessive  Grin

I love it! Good for you for thinking outside of the box! (and making little boxes, lol!) That's fantastic! I hope that your professor was as impressed with your originality as I was. I love tetris, its the only game I was ever any good at on NES, (thanks to wii I'm back into video games!) You so have to wear that come Halloween! It would make a real kick ass costume!

I am willing to bet that yours was by far the coolest in the class.

YES!!! That is the best assignment piece I have ever seen!
I hope your teacher also appreciates how creative it is. Perhaps if not, you can bribe her with a game boy to create the Tetris addiction. (I sooo love that game!!)
